I have a 87' Phazer 485cc, i COULD ONLY GET IT TO GO 70 MPH, i know it should be faster the carbs are clean and compression is good . It is running rich though what can i adjust to get better top speed???????????

Also when on pwder and jumping on the throttle the track starts making noises like thumping clicks and something is skipping ?

Hey, you're not too far off, but it should have more go than that. I get my 91 Phazer II to 130kms/hr (80 mph) easy. As for adjusting, I'm sure someone on here will know what to do. I haven't had to touch any settings like that yet. I put new plugs in though.
What were you riding on? If you ride in deep powder, you're not gonna go very fast at all. You need good hardpack to get up there in the speed.

Mine has done 77mph on the GPS so far, and it read just over 130 on the speedo. Iv seen over 150 on the speedo so im just waiting to go check out another drag strip as the one made on my local lake got burried.

Hey Akrievins, sledman92 has got a pipe!!

Sledman92, can you tell us of what you had to do as for clutching and jetting after the pipe, PLEASE!, or any other mods.

Track tension absolutely. Also have a look at the belt, and when were the clutches serviced last, perhaps you are not getting full shift-out.

I was thinking about a pipe for mine as well. I'd really like to hear what needed to be changed to keep things running right. Are you happy with the change in performance? How loud is it? Was it worth the money?

Waiting to hear about this as well. I don't want to go overboard with mods, but a little more top end would be awesome. I don't see how I could sell this Phazer. It does everything I want it to.

I had to jet it just a bit to ensure reliability..( I will check to see exactly what I am running it i now..I believe it's 140s BUT I am not sure I will find out). I have found that the pipe is louder but to too much, the performance is better ( mid,top end )..I just put the pipe on about a month a go (300kms) so far so good..My buddy helps me out with most of the work this summer I am custom making a cold air intake ( hard to find one) and reeds so I am sure i will have to re jet again with a new track it should be a great play sled..But I won't go any father then that I don't want to blow it...I know how you guys feel with the Phazer,( Venture) great sleds but you just want a little more power but don't want to ruin the fact that it is the most reliable sled on snow !!! As for clutching I am still playing with it, I don't have that worked out just yet!!!
